Couple who first met at hotel celebrate six decades of marriage

3 1 0

A couple who first met at a hotel where they were meant to be learning to dance have gone on to mark six decades of marriage together.

Having lived in Lowestoft all their lives, Bryan - Bob as he is known - and Joyce Mitchell were surprised by their family last Thursday, June 3 as they celebrated their diamond anniversary with a special party.

Mr Mitchell, 83, and Mrs Mitchell, 79, had first met at The Scotsman Hotel on Marine Parade, Kirkley in September 1957.

Mrs Mitchell recalled how Bob was "wearing a bright red shirt with lurex thread" that caught her eye as she thought it was lovely.
